Former NFL player asks Stephentown partiers to help honor military heroes

Posted: Updated:

STEPHENTOWN, N.Y. -- Former New England Patriots player Brian Holloway is making a plea to the 300 young people police say damaged his property in Stephentown during an unauthorized party.

Holloway wants the teens to help him honor military heroes and find redemption. He will be holding a picnic this Saturday at his Stephentown retreat, asking people to come and bring food as a way to honor military personnel and their families.

He posted a special note to the partiers on his website inviting them to help set up, fix up and "take a stand" for their futures. The picnic will be held Saturday, September 21 from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. at his home, 742 NY Route 43 in Stephentown. All attendees are asked to bring a dish.

Police are still in the process of investigating and interviewing the teens who allegedly posted pictures of the party, including damage caused, on social media.

Investigators with the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office documented the damage finding walls spray painted, windows broken, floors scuffed by beer kegs and soaked with urine.

An eagle statue that was part of a memorial for Holloway's stillborn grandson was also stolen during the party, but has since been returned.
